The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) on Monday formally released the results of its investigation on the administrative charges filed against the defunct Wilyonaryo segment of ABS-CBN’s noontime show Wowowee.

“A reasonable assessment of the existing game mechanics and procedures implemented at the time of the subject 20 August 2007 Wilyonaryo episode reveals that the game show segment allowed a reasonable likelihood of error and provided the host and organizers significant latitude in controlling the outcome of the contest,” part of the 11-page DTI decision said.
